: Eastern Long Island Guide Recommendation?

08-03-2004, 08:13 PM

I'm going on vacation to the Hamptons from 08/18-24 or so. Want to get a guide for me and two others.

#1 Is the fishing worth the expense this time of year?
#2 Who do you recommend?

I'll owe you one--thanks

You might try contacting the Urban Angler in the city to get some ideas for guides and fishing out there. I believe they have a few guides that are recommended in that area. I'll be headed out in that direction towards the blitz around the end of October and might try to hook up with a guide depending on finances.

Give Brendan McCarthy a call I was on the phone with him today and he was telling me that August is always slow but the fishing is awesome out that way. He says guy's are saving their "honey please" time for the fall run. Brendan is good and a very nice relaxed guide. 917-847-9576

There is a woman guide out of Urban Angler who gets her sports onto fish when others don't give her a try. FishHawk

Give Capt. Tom Cornecelli @ Back Bay Charters a call. I believe he is out of Moriches.

Great guy as long as you dont get your boat to close to his :tsk_tsk:
